Time for another installment of the "Six Pack" with Bro. This time around we are chatting with the fellas from Bottomfed. Four guys from Buzzard's Bay, MA jamming in drummer Alec's basement. Since launching Bro-Metal we have been watching these guys and we are huge fans of their sound. Plus, it also helped direct us to Alec's other project, playing in the band, From The Makers Of. Well, lets not waste time and crack open a "Six Pack" with Bottomfed.
Bro: Metal comes in many different forms. How would you describe your style of metal?
Bottomfed: We’re influenced by a lot of early metal like Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer. We also take influences from hardcore bands and many other genres to create a mix of thrashy punk riffs.
Bro: How did you get started as a band?
Bottomfed: We’re just a bunch of friends who all shared a common desire to make heavy music and now we're here.
Bro: I have listened to your two song demo. Are there any plans to release more music?
Bottomfed: We have about 6 other songs written that are much more musically evolved in comparison to the songs on our demo. We have plans to record a couple songs in the near future.
Bro: All metal fans love hearing stories from the road. What is your touring schedule like? Any crazy stories from the road you want to share?
Bottomfed: We’ve actually never played a show yet, we're waiting about another month to start playing. We'll be doing a couple weekend runs over the summer.
Bro: Cheesy question for each of you: Who are your musical influences?
Tom (bass/vocals): Lyrically La Dispute and vocally Defeater.
Robert (rhythm guitar/vocals): The Greenery
Ryan (guitar/vocals): Vocally Queen and Protest the Hero and guitar Every Time I Die
Alec (drums/vocals): Such Gold, Arctic Monkeys and The Number Twelve Looks Like You
Bro: Final question, what does Bottomfed have in store for 2014?
Bottomfed: We’re gonna keep banging out jams and raging at shows.
